HBO Orders "Untitled Rock 'N' Roll Project" to series. Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter to produce/write. Bobby Cannavale and Olivia Wilde to star.

HBO ORDERS “UNTITLED ROCK ‘N’ ROLL PROJECT” TO SERIES

Hour-long drama series will shoot in New York.

Logline: Set in 1970s New York, the series will explore the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.

Credits: Martin Scorsese – Executive Producer/Pilot Director Mick Jagger – Executive Producer Terence Winter – Showrunner/Writer/Executive Producer Rick Yorn – Executive Producer Victoria Pearman – Executive Producer Emma Tillinger Koskoff – Executive Producer George Mastras – Writer/Executive Producer

Cast: Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, the founder and president of a top-tier record label (American Century Records) with a great ear for discovering talent, who undergoes a crisis of character when confronted with a life-altering decision.

Olivia Wilde as Devon Finestra, Richie’s wife, a former actress/model who lived a Bohemian life in 1960s New York. Richie’s crisis causes strain on their family and propels her to re-immerse in her former lifestyle.

Ray Romano as Zak Yankovich, one of Richie’s partners, the tough and savvy Head of Promotions of American Century with decades of experience dating back to the dark, mob-infested days of the recording business.

Juno Temple as Jamie Vine, an ambitious assistant in the A&R Department of American Century. She uses her keen abilities to manipulate people and blend into the various subcultures of the New York music underground in order to break through the glass ceiling and get ahead at the record label.

Andrew “Dice” Clay as Frank “Buck” Rogers, the cocaine-fueled owner of a chain of radio stations.

Ato Essandoh as Lester Grimes, a former singer and ex-colleague of Richie Finestra.

Max Casella as Julius “Julie” Silver, nurturing yet with an explosive temper, and the Head of A&R of American Century, who struggles to stay hip and relevant in the young man’s game of the rock ‘n’ roll business.

James Jagger as Kip Stevens, lead singer of Nasty Bits, an early punk-rock band.

Jack Quaid as Clark Morelle, a young A&R executive at American Century who struggles for a foothold in the competitive environment of the A&R team.

Birgitte Sorenson as Ingrid, a Danish actress favored by Andy Warhol and close friend of Richie Finestra’s wife, Devon.

P.J. Byrne as Scott Levitt, Head of Legal for American Century Records.

J.C. MacKenzie as Skip Fontaine, Richie’s partner and Head of Sales for American Century Records.

Bo Dietl as Joe Corso, a thuggish “independent promotion man” who may or may not have ties to organized crime.

Armen Garo as Corrado Galasso, a New York mob boss.

Robert Funaro as Tony Del Greco, chief enforcer for a New York mob boss.

Joe Caniano as Leo, Richie’s longtime chauffeur and confidante.

IJW: The Station Agent (2003)

Before he was Tyrion Lannister, a very young looking Peter Dinklage played Finbar McBride, a man who is bequeathed property in New Jersey. To fulfill his legal obligations he has to check it out, and that's where we start. As his friendships with Olivia (Clarkson) and Joe (Cannavale) deepen, Fin goes from being a solitary man, to a man forging connections with his quirky neighbours.

I feel like this was a really honest movie, especially through its simplicity. Could have done with some more punches though. There were the obvious digs at Finbar's height, and a couple of small-town cliches.

Wasn't sure what to expect going in to this movie. I normally download movies using one of two methods:

  1. See an actor I like in a movie, remember this fact when I am drunk and download everything they've ever been in, or:

  2. Some one/some list recommends it to me.

I'm pretty sure this came from a list of obscure comedies.

Good performances by Patricia Clarkson, Bobby Cannavale, Richard Kind and Michelle Williams.

Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine and Boardwalk Empire

So I'm about 40 minutes into Blue Jasmine, and I just gotta mention this.

During the first 15 minutes, I saw George Remus talking in the background, and I'm like "Cool, it's Remus!!"

Then Bobby Cannavale appears as a central character and I'm like "Cool, 2 Boardwalk actors. Awesome coincidence."

And at the 35 minute mark, I see Michael Stuhlbarg walk on screen as a dentist.

Woody Allen is CLEARLY a Boardwalk Empire fan. He must have done this on purpose so people like me can get all giddy every time someone walks on screen.

If Stephen Graham appears on my screen in the next 10 minutes, I'm gonna pass out of Boardwalkgasm.

Blue Jasmine (dir. Woody Allen)

Woody Allen's films have always dealt with neurotic people going through the anxieties that life has thrown at them. He's become a master at it, which is fitting, given that the man spent decades undergoing psychoanalysis. And with Blue Jasmine, with Cate Blanchett giving a terrific performance as the titular character, he's created another neurotic that I'd rank among the best character's he's written.

Jasmine is wrecked after her Ponzi scheming millionaire husband goes down, loses her damn mind, and tries to get her life back together by moving in with her much less well off sister, who has problems of her own. Allen's script uses this to craft a story about people trying to take control of their lives, for better or for worse, and coming to terms how much control they actually have over things. Jasmine can't control her public ramblings and descents into her traumatic marriage. She needs a job, wants to go back to school and ultimately heal her broken mind, albeit with some alcohol and Xanax thrown in.

It sounds depressing, but the movie is frequently hilarious and shifts between humor and drama naturally. The cast is a big part of that, and everyone is great here, even Louis C.K. in his small role. Bobby Cannavale's character might be in the running for Worst Haircut of All Fucking Time, but he humanizes what could have easily been a stereotypical blue collar grease monkey. And Andrew Dice Clay is good, too! Yay for the Diceman! But Blanchett is the star of the show, and shows us the flighty, hoity-toity, pre downfall Jasmine with as much conviction as the post downfall, slightly insane one, giving us a full performance and creating a character I'll remember for quite sometime. My favorite performance of the year so far.

The movie is well shot, as with most Allen pictures, featuring his usual long takes and tracking shots, naturally keeping a certain pace to the scenes while putting us right in the mix with the characters. There's a particular shot with Jasmine and a dentist, who she's gotten a receptionist job from, that is filmed in one long take, lasting easily for a few minutes as it pans and adjusts to the characters, maintaining a sense of unease and awkwardness that you would get in a scene with a bunch of cuts. Woody Allen has perfected these types scenes with intricate blocking and framing, so it shouldn't come as a surprise, but he still deserves praise for it, especially when compared to other filmmakers.

This is a great character study, folks. Sure, it borrows from A Streetcar Named Desire, as a lot of people have said, but really only on a framework level. And borrowing from Tennessee Williams is hardly a bad thing. I'd rank Woody Allen in the top 5 American screenwriters of all time, because I think his writing, when on point, is as good as anybodies. Sure, his movies have their flaws, but I feel that people can be really unfair to his work, especially his newer stuff. His recent work might not approach "classic" Woody Allen levels, but compared to other filmmakers, its pretty good.

Blue Jasmine has something different about it that makes it stand out from the rest of his filmography. Maybe its a little more cynical, or harsher, particularly on the main character. But it definitely stands out, and is one of my most enjoyed movies this year. See it when you can.
